A block board is made up of softwood strips and veneers. It is manufactured by placing softwood strips edge to edge and sandwiched between veneers and then this sandwich is glued together with high pressure. It is useful in the area where it is likely exposed to humidity and water prone areas. It has good dimensional stability so is highly resistive to wrapping and cracking. This is the reason why the board is used mostly for manufacturing doors. It is light in weight than plywood due to its softwood which extend life span of furniture. The block board is made for industrial uses.
